As many of you may know, Garrett Popcorn Shops is a world famous popcorn brand that was born in Chicago more than 65 years ago and has been known for providing delicious popcorn made from extremely high-quality corn. The corn used in Garrett Popcorn is made by farmers chosen by the brand who are able to produce corn with large kernels. By mixing two brands of corn, Garrett Popcorn successfully creates a fluffy yet crispy texture that has grabbed the hearts and stomachs of so many people. Garrett Popcorn is also extremely dedicated to providing the freshest popcorn and so only produces their popcorn in small quantities leading to the long lines that grow out of each shop.
You might be thinking, “why is this person introducing me to a brand of popcorn everybody knows?” Well, the answer is in their limited edition, limited quantity new flavor that will only be available in Japan starting from July 13th.
The new flavor is called “Coconut Caramel Crisp” and if you are absolutely addicted to coconut and caramel like I am, this is sure to be something you absolutely have to try! The new limited edition flavor features two types of coconut chips in the popcorn, creating a new crispy texture to the traditional caramel popcorn from Garrett. The sweet fragrance of caramel and tropical taste of coconut is sure to make a wonderful mix that is perfect for the summer season.
Along with the sale of the new flavor, Garrett is also offering new kinds of limited edition tins. The one above is the Rainbow Tin that reminds you of the tropical colors of summer and perfect to accompany your coconut caramel crisp popcorn. There will also be a revival of summer tin designs that were sold in the summer of 2015. The Hanabi (Fireworks) Tin and the Hawaiian Tin (photo left and middle) will also be sold starting the 13th of July and are also perfect for accompanying the new summer flavor.
This new flavor is planned to be sold until the end of August so if you are lucky enough to be in Japan during this time period, be sure to check out one of the Garrett Popcorn shops in Japan to enjoy this new summer flavor and its accompanying tins!
